Matthew's Blessing

Here's a rare picture of our family:) We had a wonderful day celebrating Matthew's arrival and having the privilege of dear friends helping with the blessing.

There was Jonathan Clark, David Sundahl, Paul Baratta, Bishop Beecroft, Randy Peterson,and my dad in the circle for the blessing. What a sweet experience to see such wonderful men who honor the priesthood standing there holding an infant in their arms giving our sweet Matthew blessings from Heaven. There's nothing so beautiful!

Thank you all for your support, prayers and good thoughts for our family.

Here's a picture with Grandma and Grandpa Pearson.

We were so blessed that they could come for Christmas and so we arranged to bless Matthew while they were here. They blessed him in church on Dec. 28th and it was so wonderful to have my dad be there for it. I just realized that my dad has been at every one of our children's blessings. That really means a lot to me.

Ryan did an absolutely beautiful job as a righteous priesthood holder giving our son a sincere blessing and pronounced some amazing blessing on Matthew. The spirit was so sweet and tender and I could feel that Matthew is an incredible person who will be full of compassion and understanding of others, sent to our tender care straight from Heaven.

Me snuggling my little prince....I just can't get enough of him!

I love to laugh at my silly mommy taking a zillion pictures of me!

Matthew was blessed in a "vintage" outfit having been worn by to my older brother Chris. It looked adorable on him even though it's not very wintery! It has a neat textured material with a darling Peter Pan collar, three stitched crowns down the front and some pearly buttons on each side of the crowns. I tried to find little shoe but they all had a huge cross on them. And a simple white sweater was impossible to find. SO... here you have it. His blessing outfit minus the matcing hat since I thought it made him look like a dork...sorry mom:)

Handsome fella! It's funny how every picture I take of him makes him look so different each time:) But isn't he just sooooo handsome and charming?!
